that are going on. resentment over the failure of the united states to act more forcefully in syria. the contest, the intramural contest between elements of the muslim brotherhood in egypt and the more radical elements of the islamic extremists who are trying to hijack the revolution away from the moderate muslim brotherhood, which is part of the problem. there is this residual belief that there are americans still at war with islam and those who want to burn the koran. there's still this gulf of misunderstanding between what arabs actually believe the united states feels about the role of islam in the middle east and what actually is taking place. there are so many cross currents it's almost impossible to put your finger on one or two things. the bottom line however, is that america's standing in the region has deteriorated for a variety of reasons that would take a book to quantify at this point. >> marc, there's been a huge change in tone on the part of the egyptian government i would say since president obama's call to president morsi the other day. morsi comes down and calls the protesters
's happening in the united states. some people are telling -- >> we're going to have to -- >> don't vote because he's secretly a muslim. is there a war >> we're going to continue this discussion on our website. rula, thank you for joining me tonight. "the ed show" is up next. stay with us and watched this online. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. thank you for joining us. we have breaking news off the top tonight. i think this may be one of the biggest turns of the campaign. today a recording of mitt romney at a private fundraiser has surfaced. it reveals his frank, candid opinion of nearly half of the american population. it was recorded without romney's knowledge. and it was provided to a magazine as well as nbc news's own michael isikoff. here's part of the tape. >> romney didn't know that was being recorded. he was speaking to donors. the romney campaign has responded tonight. mitt romney wants to help all americans struggling in the obama economy as he has made known all year. he is concerned about the growing number of people who are dependent
the bus. now we've seen a very different timeline from israel and the united states from netanyahu. netanyahu says within months iran will have gone beyond the point of no return. american intelligence believes there's more time. where do we stand now with israel and is mitt romney -- >> we stand -- >> that the president has thrown israel under the bus? >> well, first of all, the term throwing israel under the bus is really a remarkable -- you know, it's an unbelievably cynical explosivetive term that is also a lie. it is a fundamental lie. and mitt romney ought to be ashamed of himself for continuing to say it when he knows that prime minister netanyahu and defense minister ehud barak have both said this administration has the strongest security and military cooperation with israel it has ever had. ever. and the president has taken steps to put america in a position to deal with iran with whatever eventuality may be necessary, and i mean whatever eventuality may be necessary. the president made that crystal clear in his speech at the united nations. and, yesterday, prime minister
and a white america and latino america and asian america. there's a united states of america. >> eight years after the keynote that launched his national career, four years after becoming the nation's first african-american nominee, tonight president barack obama accepts the nomination a second time. tonight the president makes his case for four more years. >> four more years. >> america needs four more years. >> tonight more from the first lady, vice president biden, caroline kennedy, the foo fighters? yes, the foo fighters. weather moved tonight indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our co
be about a year and that the united states and israel and the world community would know if and when iran makes that turn. another thing they agree on, it can't be just a policy of containing iran, allowing them to go nuclear, but keeping them contained much like the old cold war as the west did with the soviet union. but prime minister netanyahu wants a more forthright stance publicly from the united states in terms of that red line. setting forth, delineating a clear deadline, clear red line of how far iran can or cannot go in developing those nuclear weapons. here's a little bit more of what he told david gregory. >> is israel closer to taking action into its own hands? >> we always reserve the right to act. but i think that if we are able to coordinate together a common position, we increase the chances that neither one of us will have to act. >> he wants more coordination with the united states in taking a stronger stand against iran. meanwhile ambassador rice says iran is growing more isolated under the policies that are now in place absent any military action. >> iran is more isola
of the united states. it made us proud as americans to know that those prejudices that we've had in the past are falling away. >> beyond some of the more personal areas, we sat down at campaign headquarters the next morning for more detailed discussion about where governor romney stands on the key issues of the campaign. so governor, we talked last night about jobs and the economy and also the debt. i want to begin there. you've called the debt and our deficit a moral crisis and yet in addition to extending the bush tax cuts you want to cut tax rates an additional 20%. you've rejected a 10-1 spending ratio when it comes to spending to increasing taxes. and yet you want to balance the budget. the math simply doesn't add up, does it? >> actually it does. five different economic studies including one at harvard, princeton, aei and a couple at the "wall street journal" all show that if we bring down our o top rates and go across the board, bring down rates for everyone in america, but also limit deductions and exemptions for people at the high end, you can keep the progressivity in the code, rem
as the democratic candidate for president of the united states. we have a pretty feisty audience. >> we have so many paul ryan fans. paul ryan, paul ryan, paul ryan! yes! yes, can you feel the love. i bet we have a lot of crimson tide fans, too. roll tide! >> it's all right. we have with us contribute mike barnicle and senior political analyst mark halperin and msnbc political analyst john heilemann, whose cover story for this week's "new york" magazine is on joe biden's role in the campaign. >> what a great cover. >> as we said, later today democrats will kick off their national convention here in north carolina, a state with 15 electoral votes up for grabs this november. president obama won north carolina by a microscopic number of votes in 2008. but a new poll shows the president will have his work cut out for him if he hopes to win here again. mitt romney currently leads the president 47% to 43%. one of the first orders of business will be to adopt the party platform. it echos president obama's call for higher taxes on wealthier americans while backing same-sex marriage and abortion rights. it s
to be prepared to, you know, just coming on to the stage with the president of the united states gives you some gravitas right there. and typically in the first debate -- the challenger was declared the winner. so let's just keep in mind that we can't take anything for granted. let's focus on the ground game. we've got 40 days to go. >> you've got a good day one. that's for sure. congresswoman deb bie wasserman-schultz with us on "the ed show." thanks so much. answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and facebook. we want to know what you think. >>> coming up, yes, there's another video of mitt romney. it has surfaced and shows his true identity of how he views middle class workers in america. we'll show you the video and robert reich will comment. sleep train's inventory clearance sale is ending soon. save 10%, 20%, even 35% on a huge selection of simmons and sealy clearance mattresses. get 2 years interest-free financing on tempur-pedic. even get free delivery! sleep train stacks the savings high to keep the prices low. but hurry, the inven
accelerator. as you look across the united states, you seatons of small urban businesses that are running on a razor's edge when it comes to cash flow. at the same time, you see numerous university students that are well-educated and eager to get into the communities that surround their campuses. what we've done in an effort to mobilize these two groups is formed the boston university urban business accelerator where we send student neems underserved communities to work with the small businesses within them. over the course of ten weeks, they implement quick books for the business owners and use it is a means to compare the business owners against industry averages as well as identify areas within their business for cost savings. what our program needs is $250,000 so that we can launch this program across the united states serving the underserved communities that need it the most. what you will be doing is investing directly into students' education and the economy as each business we works with saves money, retains jobs and creates jobs for the economy that we are all a part of. thank yo

? >> the united states military says most joint operations with the americans and afghan soldiers are going to be suspended until further notice. and mika, this is horrifying when you look at the fact that u.s. policy makers have been justifying continuing this war in afghanistan based on this -- this -- this lie that we're going to be able to train them and help these people who are shooting and killing our troops, help them run the country. >> the longest war and for the longest time no one who is in charge or who knows about these issues can tell us what winning means. the move comes amid an alarming string of insider attacks. the latest on sunday that left four american soldiers dead. yesterday, nato announced it was also scaling back joint operations with afghan security forces. the joint combat patrols are seen as a critical part of the u.s. plan to withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of 2014. and just a few hours ago, in the capital of kabul, nine people were killed when a suicide bomb rammed a car packed with explosives into to a mini bus believed to be carrying foreign workers.
to win and distance themselves from this guy who is, as i say, plainly not fit to be in the united states senate, given some of his views. but it is possible, as jim vandehei said, it's possible he could win this race. and it's clear that a lot of republicans and the republican establishment now looking at the math are thinking about coming back in. i think the republican senatorial committee is very likely to put money into this race. i think the polls will tighten. as horrific as it will be to many people not just on the left but in the middle of the electorate, i think there's a reasonable chance he could win this race. >> not only do i agree with that, take a look, joe, at what roy blunt did. he is moving up in leadership, and he came out and supported akin yesterday. so that is -- >> the senator from michigan. >> yeah, that's the leading indicator. that tells you that the republican committee is going to go full in, and they see this as their way to regain control, and it's all about regaining control. and i can tell you that some of the very people now supporting him are republicans
in a loud voice. >> i pledge allegiance to the flag of the united states of america, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation, under god, indivisible, liberty and justice for all. >> there wasn't a dry eye. good day, i'm andrea mitchell back in washington from the democratic convention. two candidates stepping off a big convention platform to take their message to swing state voters today. president obama, you just saw in new hampshire, trying to ride any momentum that he might get from his big speech, and from all of the speeches that led up to his, while team romney is capitalizing on today's weak jobs numbers. >> we had this very tepid report. for every net one job created, nearly four people left the work force. so this is not what a recovery looks like. >> that of course, paul ryan on cnbc. joining me, mark halperin in charlotte, and with me here at the table, "washington post" columnist, ruth marcus. welcome both. first to you, mark. the afterglow of the convention and then this jobs report showing clearly that people are discouraged, they are no longer even trying to ge
. teddy kennedy had that. clinton has that. i think that in time, the president of the united states, barack obama, is acquiring it as well. there was at the end of his speech where he began to warm, to warm to it. there was a kind of passion that built and i thought that's the direction he has to go. that will be his authenticity. >> i agree with you. there was a lot of talk of it being a workmanlike speech but it ended with a huge lift. we will talk more about the performances on display at the dnc last week on "now." james lipton gave us his assessment of governor romney's big speech at the rnc. >> i would say that he has certainly improved, without question. he was more confident. he was more assertive. he was more relaxed. and let us now ask why. he was preaching to the converted. he was, as we say, preaching to the choir. >> will any of the convention performances inform campaign dynamics and the race towards november? we will have more with james lipton, next. this country was built by working people. the economy needs manufacturing. machines, tools, people making stuff. compa
challenge the united states faces is shaping iran's choices in the world. that's not going to come from sanctions. it's not going to come from bombing them. it's showing that you can sculpt the international system. part of that means moving russia, moving china. with russia what you have is a resurgent national, almost in their own terms a reaganesque moment where they've decided to use syria and some of these other points in the world to show their own people for domestic reasons that they can stand tough against the united states. that's a problem for us. >> you know, roger, when you say romney sort of stumbled into them, you know, maybe they're not the number one geopolitical threat to the united states but they're a geopolitical rival. >> they're a big rival. >> they're a rival, partner, adversary. >> everything. >> in a weird way we got them in the wto. that's a partnership. >> exactly. >> they're basically facing us down in every major foreign policy. >> the reality of foreign policy is you do not have a single issue drives with a particular country. there are a multitude of issu
the next president of the united states will appoint several justices to the supreme court. that often is the most lasting legacy of an entire presidency. i find it strange, given the amount of coverage that citizens united has got, i found if i'm traveling or speaking to groups reporting, among progressive folks, everyone knows citizens unite and hates them. everyone knows the court gave us citizens united, the court upheld the piece of legislation not just for this president but probably democrats of the last 30 or 40 years. yet, the court is nowhere in the election so far. jeff, you wrote about this yesterday. what is your take on why we are not hearing about the court on the campaign trail. >> because, i have asked political professionals this question repeatedly. democrats and republicans say the same thing. they say the people who really care about the supreme court are committed to their party anyway. the people who want roe preserved are going to vote for the democrats those who want it reverses are going to vote republican. the swing voters don't care even if they are pro-choi
think the public may watch with anger as the united states jeopardizes, again, our bond rating worldwide. >> there's another issue that's out there related to the election, congressman and last night john lewis made an impassioned argument against voter i.d. laws. it was emotional. i want to ask you about reality. can these laws potentially change the outcome of this upcoming election? >> absolutely. when you consider the fact that many african-americans in the south were not born in hospitals as my father and his brothers were not, and so they have no birth certificate. if they are no longer driving, then it's going to be difficult for them to show government issued i.d. if you have government issued i.d. in my home state it will cost you $21. that's a poll tax. we need to shave off a couple of percentage points like in states of ohio, virginia, florida and we lose the states. it's a very serious issue. it's a solution looking for a problem. there is no voter fraud in the united states of america. and i hope the public can come to the conclusion that all of a sudden republicans are movi
much. may god bless you. may god bless the american people. and may god bless the united states of america. >>> the obama campaign senior adviser says don't expect the same level of voter enthusiasm for president obama this year like it was in 2008. >> this election was always going to be close because we live in a closely divided country. i remind people all the time that just four years ago everyone was talking about the president's landslide and he got 53% of the vote. so let's understand that we live in a very closely divided electorate. we have for quite some time, and this election was, quite frankly, always going to be close. >> meanwhile, mitt romney's reportedly spending the next few days preparing for the upcoming presidential debates which begin next month. as the party gets ready for its national convention in charlotte, north carolina, preparations are well under way at the time warner cable arena in charlotte. hello to you, chris. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. the opening of the democratic national convention is still two days away but there's still plenty pla
poor circumstances is now lower in the united states than in most of europe. that should shock us. because those are countries with aristocratic histories, very rigid class systems. yet now you have a greater chance of rising from poor circumstances than in the u.s. and what's so striking, the paradox, is that rubio and other republicans talk about upward mobility and the american dream. but they don't offer any ideas in today's circumstances for what we need to do on public policy to actually increase the odds that we can renew the american dream for the next generation. >> here's what's slightly depressing. you write after listening to president obama's proposals democrats are also, quote, unequal to today's challenges. tell me about that. >> there's no question president obama, the agenda he has from his first term and what he's proposing focus on college costs, k-12 education. it's better than what the republicans are offering because basically all they're doing is cutting taxes, cutting taxes mostly for the best off, despite what mitt romney was trying to allege on "meet the
of english as the official language of the united states. they called for the arizona papers please laws to be emulated across the country, and then the author of the arizona papers please law left the gop platform committee in order to go sue the obama administration to try to stop the mini version of the dream act the president brought about by executive order because of course republicans in congress remain totally hostile to it now even though long, long ago in a galaxy far, far away, it was a republican act in the first place. they are the biggest growing block of voters. latino voters are the reason democrats think texas is going to be a swing state as early as 2016. and to the extent that republicans want to woo those voters now in 2012, they're not trying to do it on policy. they're trying to do it on identity politics alone. it is a big gamble for them, actually, as a party. so far it's paying off in very, very, very tiny poll numbers. democrats get their chance to try to claw those numbers back this upcoming week. joining us now is victoria soto, a contributor to nbc latino. th
if you want to see barack obama re-elected president of the united states, do whatever you can for virgil goode. they challenged his spot on the ballot and they said put him on the ballot anyway, and he's going to be on the ballot unless virginia's attorney general, this guy, decides to kick virgil goode off the ballot. he's been campaigning for mitt romney including last week at the republican convention. under virginia law, he gets to decide whether virgil goode gets his name on the ballot or not. look at the headline, he promises he will be absolutely objective about this whole thing. absolutely. virginia is getting three different mitt romney ads this week. virginia, ohio, new hampshire, iowa, colorado, nevada, north carolina, florida. that's it, that's the election. who the country is counting on to handle this election about the presidency for the rest of us, eight states. when stuff gets weird in one of those eight states, when something like virgil goode happens in one of those eight states, while that might be a weird side bar virginia story at any other time in any other politic
, of the united states constitution where those so-called enumerated powers are listed. i challenge you to find words that talk about medicare or medicaid or, yes, even social security. >> donnelly also argued he has a history of reaching across the aisle, while mourdock has explicitly said he will not. this new ad uses paul ryan against mourdock. >> my way or the highway. >> i certainly think that bipartisanship ought to consist of democrats coming to the republican point of view. >> mr. mourdock's point is any movement that comes should not come from the republicans, it should -- >> i don't agree with that. >> paul ryan tried to fix those comments from a may interview appearing at a fund-raiser in indianapolis, he also said, "look at how dysfunctional the united states senate has become. we need principled effective conservatives to help us get things done, to help us break the logjam. the way you do that is you help us by sending richard mourdock." >>> joining me, stu rothlenburg. campaigns matter. >> they do. >> in connecticut and indiana. >> i think people whose time frame is just the last
, at age 5 or 6, there was revolution and they came back to the united states. and my dad had to get help, financial help. the government helped his family to be able to get on their feet again. by the way, that's the way america works. we have big hearts. we care for people who have needs. we help get them back, we help lift them up. but then we don't make that a permanent lifestyle. we don't have that become government dependence. we help people, we get them on their feet. >> mitt romney speaking just moments ago at univision's meet the candidate event at the university of miami. somewhat changing his language on immigration reform, talking about his dad as an immigrant from mexico. also defending his january remarks at another point in his speech that he was in favor of self-deportation. a video emerged the today on the campaign trail from when governor romney's father, george romney, was running for governor in the state of michigan. his wife, lenoir, talking to an interviewer about how, in fact, george romney had received welfare relief for a few years when first coming to this count
of the united states, and i don't think that they actually wanted to interview him. i don't think the republican party wanted to bring him in for a live interview. they saw his resume. it's a fantastic resume when you look at it on paper, but then you look at his record now and his positions now versus his record then, they don't trust him as dr. peterson just said. that's the problem. they don't actually think he's a conservative, and if you don't believe me, look at his record as governor. they know that. republicans aren't stupid. at least most of them aren't. i would say the same amount of dumb democrats, if you will, so they balance each other out. but my point is he's interviewing for a job and they don't like the candidate for the job and guess what? he may not actually win. >> martin, i'm glad you pointed this out. one, that sort of gives you the reason why he's creating this insane rationale about the 47%. he's trying to prove how he's going to be able to secure the office but it also underscores the fact that this is a transactional relationship. this is a quid pro quo relationship whe
. one of the least controversial things you could possibly imagine the united states government agreeing to. well, a bill to adjust that payment for the cost of living was brought to the senate floor last thursday. it was expected to go ahead, no mus, no fuss. who is going to argue with that? but it was blocked by someone in governor romney's party. an unnamed republican senator has put a hold on the cost of living adjustment to the surviving children and spouse's. the same bill is holding up the wounded in the war. governor romney, i realize you're having a hard time getting the training wheels off but here's an easy one, should someone from your own party lift that hold from those people, should the republican senator holding this up keep that hold in place or drop it. you're the leader of that party. do you have anything to say on this? 24 hours later it turns out governor romney does not have anything to say on this. but since that angry little report on this show last night, today whoever the republican senator was who was holding up that payment to veterans and their family, today

by the year. rick scott, i would dare say, is perhaps the most conservative governor in the united states. florida, i understand it's a swing state in presidential election, but it's a swing state when you have, you know, guys running like mitt romney and john mccain and bob dole. a tough conservative wins florida. >> what was the impact of that ad -- i couldn't believe when he picked ryan, the democrats ran an ad of some guy who looked like ryan pushing granny off the edge of a cliff in a wheelchair. it was subtle. >> it was subtle but that doesn't work because marco rubio got elected by promising. the one big debate that he had with charlie crist and the democratic opponent, he talked about raising social security to 70. bob graham, one of the most popular democratic politicians in florida history, always talked about the need of possibly raising the retirement age for social security and medicare. the voters there are a lot smarter than politicians think. so no, it wasn't that good. let's talk some more about ike because, again, i think the guy is slowly evolving into my favorite presi

that a candidate for the president of the united states would go behind closed door and declare to a group of wealthy donors that half of the american people view themselves as victims, entitled to handouts and are unwilling to take personal responsibility for their lives. it's not my job to care about those people. we can never convince they should take personality responsibility and care for their lives. he's saying, andrea, how does anybody deal with that? >> that is the most damaging part of it because he's suggesting not only that he can't get their votes but that he has responsibility to them as a future leader. now, let me just say, as joan just pointed out, that most people on food stamps are white. so he's speaking to a he have -- about a very broad segment. >> when he's talking to white people, that's now not how they say it. >> mitt romney wants to help all americans struggling in the obama campaign as the governor has made clear he's concerned about the growing number of people dependent on the federal government, including the record number of people on food stamps, nearly one
